And Then There Was One

One Day To Pedal, That Is – yep, we have one day to pedal, potatoes. Remember, pedaling ends tomorrow at midnight. All miles MUST be entered by midnight on July 25th.

Spud Drowsy leads our pack of potatoes over the finish line today with 128.1 miles.

Erin Loves Spuds made her final ride over the finish line a fun one, despite the flat tire and wraps up with 105.4 miles and a thank you to her biking bud, Later Tater.

The most fun part of Helmer Spud’s 102.9 miles was beating Kartoffel Kaiser to the finish line – we know she’ll get there though and is there a name change in the works?

Robert Bakes Potatoes and Pig-Pen Potato have finished with exactly the same mileage. They both check in with 101.97 miles, exactly.

Spuddy Holly is over the line for another magnets, hit the century mark with 100 miles, bringing our total number of potatoes over the line to 156.

We have pedaled over 27,400 miles and have 55 potatoes who have started but are still not over the line. Hopefully most of them will make it tomorrow. Several of those are within 20 miles of the finish line and a couple of those work with me – you don’t want to hear about it for the rest of the year, do you?

I’m also looking at these 57 potatoes on the couch. Definitely some DUD SPUDs in training. We’ll see how many of the remaining 55 who started are going to join them.

Potato Happenings:

Tri Potato got some additional miles today riding back and forth from the lemonade stand. Her potatoes in training (one hers, the other a friend) set up a stand along the VA Cap Trail.

Salt Life Yam was cut off by a car (be careful potatoes), unfortunately, it was a police car. Fry Alicia was also cut off – only by a deer. It happened while she was climbing, so again, crisis averted. Everyone is reporting in OK and no mashed potatoes.

Bramboregg had the rain wash away the oil from his chain. He just bought some anchovies at the supermarket and used the oil to lube the chain and keep going.

If you see Potato Chip Rock, wish him a Happy Anniversary – he rode a mile for each of the 34 years today. Congratulations on the anniversary and the ride.

Harley Taterson is closing in on Paris (97.2 miles so are) and his yellow jersey arrives Monday. He’s ready to show it off.


Log your miles using the exact email you registered with or they won’t show up. Pedaling ends at midnight, July 24 and all miles need to be entered by midnight July 25.
